Yesterday I tried 4 times to write this newsletter without success. Maybe it was not meant to be sent out on a gloomy, rainy day. Today however, I am guessing that my 1st try at writing this will be successful, because it is warm and sunny out today! I must say that I am much more of a fan of sunny weather than gloomy weather, unless of course, I can stay home cuddled under a warm quilt, either in front of a fireplace or watching TV and having popcorn! I'm betting that most of you feel the same way. We all have stormy days in our lives that we have to deal with, but we are always happy when the storm passes and the sun shines again. Here's to sunshine!
Yesterday, I was trying to figure out how we got to the end of October already...what in the world happened to July? And speaking of July, did you know that we only have 61 days left until Christmas?? That's not very long ladies to get all of our projects done for Christmas...or even our shopping if you don't want to wait til the last minute...just sayin'!
Maybe some of our upcoming classes will help you get motivated..so on with that.
